Hans Scholl – leaving for university

This morning, I got up at 8:30 am, subsequently ate breakfast, read,  and left my apartment around 10:30 am. I carried an empty suitcase with me. My sister carried my empty leather briefcase. My sister Sofie Scholl accompanied me from my apartment (Franz-Josef Str. 13) to the university. We walked down the right-hand side of Ludwig Street to the university and arrived there around 10:45 am. …

Question: What was in your briefcase? Was it likewise empty when you left the house?

Answer: The briefcase was empty too. I planned to buy a few things. I especially wanted to buy clay pipes at Diehl’s.
